Museum of Modern Art announces details of Björk exhibit

on February 03, 2015, 10:00am

New York’s Museum of Modern Art recently announced plans for a multimedia exhibition chronicling Björk’s 20-plus-year career of pushing artistic and creative boundaries. Now, the MoMa has provided more specific details about what to expect from the “full-scale retrospective” titled simply Björk.

The exhibit will feature highlights from the Icelandic singer’s various releases, large-scale stage designs, and ornate collection of costumes. The centerpiece of the exhibit, however, will be Black Lake, “an immersive 10-minute music and film experience” created by director Andrew Thomas Huang and 3D design-firm Autodesk that coincides with the track of the same name from Björk’s latest album Vulnicura. (That’s a still from the video above.) Huang previously collaborated with the Björk on the “Mutual Core” video.

Icelandic writer Sjón has also been enlisted to write a “fictional biographical narration” for an “experimental sound experience.” Many of the components of the Biophilia tour and app will also be featured, including the unique instruments designed specifically for the album.

The exhibit will run from March 8th to June 7th, coinciding with her upcoming string of tour dates in New York City. For more details, check out the MoMa event page.
